The upper bound equation derived in Part 1 is manipulated to obtain more detailed information about composite strength and deformation behavior. Several behavior transitions which occur are discussed and the transition from homogeneous to nonhomogeneous deformation is approximated. Finally, it is demonstrated that developed expressions can be utilized to estimate composite strength.
